Jet into Rio Carnival - The Biggest Party in the World
26 January 2019
This year the Rio Carnival is scheduled to run from Friday 1st March to Saturday 9th March 2019, culminating in the magnificent Champions Parade.
What began as pagan festival celebrated in honour of the gods during the early 15th century is now known as the Rio Carnival or Mardi Gras – literally “Fat Tuesday” – the day before Lent when all the richer fattier foods are used up before fasting begins. One of the biggest and most colourful celebrations in the world, Rio Carnival is one of the most energizing, electrifying performances you will ever experience.
Whether you’d like to party down in the streets or in high-end sophisticated balls, the party truly never stops at the Rio Carnival.
Rio Carnival draws travel enthusiasts and party goers from every corner of the globe.
The Portuguese were the first to organize parades and introduced the carnival to Brazil.
The Samba schools of Rio are made up of the finest dancers and musicians making the Rio Carnival parade extra special. The very first Samba school, Mangueira was formed in 1928 and set the standard for all other samba schools that followed.
The Sambadrome Stadium is where all the participants and contenders of the grand Rio Carnival 2019 will perform, and a winner is elected.
You can join the party in the streets or treat yourselves to tickets for the Magic Ball at the famous Copacabana Palace Hotel. If you are looking for glamour and sophistication, this is where you want to be.
The hotel’s magnificent rooms are decorated in a special theme for the occasion every year. From crystal to butterflies, the ball has a different theme each year. Men are asked to wear black tie or luxury costume, while women can choose between black tie dress or a luxury costume. And while it isn't a requirement, many guests sport extremely elaborate costumes, so you don’t have to be bashful about going over-the-top. No one will ever find you over-dressed or under-dressed in a city like Rio.
The Scala Nightclub in Rio also hosts 6 different balls, but the most popular is the Scala Gay Ball which is known for its wild costumes and crazy outfits and is the last party at the Scala.
Flying to Rio on a private jet would make the whole experience extra special. If you are going, why not make the whole trip one you will never forget.
Indication Prices for flights to Rio from Europe, New York or Dubai start from around £100,000 on a beautiful Ultra Long Range Aircraft.
The Global 6000, Falcon 7X or the new Falcon 8X with a fabulous large comfortable cabin, and legendary efficiency, would be perfect for this trip.
